Graduate Recital Program Notes: Charles Tomlinson Griffes, Poem for Flute and Orchestra Charles Griffes (1884-1920) was the director of music at the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY from 1907–1920. He studied piano at a young age, to continue his education he moved to Berlin, where he studied piano, composition, and counterpoint at the Stern Conservatory. Griffes’s early compositions were influenced to some degree by German Romanticism, especially German Lieder. He never reached atonality in his music-making, however, at the end of his career he adopted an abstract phase that many critics among them Paul Rosenfeld, and Nicolas Slonimsky acknowledged to be impressionist and orientalist. The Poem for Flute and Orchestra (1918) originally written for Georges Barrère demands high lyrical virtuosity from the performer.
And Thus Father Boyle shows another assertion about how humor is a great centralization of keep your head up through struggles and disappointment. Boyle reminisces of a time he held Mass for youths in Los Angeles Youth Authority center, helped by Larry, Juan, and Jerome. Boyle is informed that Juan will sing a solo piece after communion, and Boyle is excited as he has never experienced that before. When Juan begins to sing, it is utterly terrible. A second Mass is held, and Juan Seems to sing even worse.
Through the reference of Pliny, Justin and Didache I was able to see ideas that were reflected in the mass. I will also be sharing how I made connections to the Early Church and what I liked and did not care for in the service. At the beginning of the service the choir stood in the front and lead the congregation in singing. The songs were found in a book in front of the pew, but most people
For example, we hear church bells in the beginning demonstrating the feel of tolling the death knell which indicates that some one died,while the timphony demonstrates anger towards the end and then there is a piccolo/ flute solo at measure 78, and the brass section demonstrating rage and anger towards the end of the piece. Adding on that, there is a unique oboe part too. This piece also gathers a wide variety of dynamics and expressions making it interesting to play. For example, in the first few measures it starts slowly and softly which gives a sad, funereal feel, then when the alto saxophones, tenor saxophones, and clarinets join,they begin piano then transition to mezzo forte and then returns to piano again. This process gives a feeling of how the sister feels guilty and angry and upset all at the same time for not being able to support her sister before she died.
She was greatly affected by Pierre’s death as he is very close companion and helps her with many scientific discoveries. But, she knows she has to continue working. She plans a funeral, and the story became widely known. (Pasachoff 62) b. Marie Curie returned to research that day after the funeral. She went with Jacques and wrote in her diary: “On the Sunday morning after your death, Pierre, I went to the laboratory with Jacques for the first time.
Just like Edna I have had a somewhat similar experience. With my transition from Catholic school to public school I had to discard my uniform for my own new wardrobe that reflected me. I went to a Catholic school called St. Margaret Mary’s for basically my whole life. I started going there since Kindergarten and attended there until eighth grade. It was a small school.
I, the worst of all, depicts the story of Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz, who was a nun who advocated for equal rights in the 17th century, and died of the plague in 1695 in the New World. This paper draws on secondary sources from Paz, Lavrin, and Ramirez to argue that Sor Juana’s death is ultimately the consequence of systemic sexism within the Church and society. The Church allowed, in the 17th century, women refuge and a livelihood in an era where they had few other opportunities outside of marriage. However, women took part in an institution fully dominated by men who believed that women were biologically and intellectually inferior. These men used women within the convent to control their will.
Sunday Mass This observation has been carried out this Sunday in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. It took about one and a half hours with different social groups and their interactions have been observed. Since it is a Catholic Church, you can notice that most of the people were white and the upper middle and wealthy classes of American households. The interaction there were mainly by the chorus members and the piano player. To do this task, I went to the church with my two children to attend the Sunday mass.
According to Melissa Hoebee, she said, ”I chose Millersville University for several reasons. It had a strong education program, it was close to home, and my brother also went there (so I had the comfort of knowing people before I attended college there)”. She aimed for elementary degree and a special education degree. She was also into english and math at middle school level. At 2009, she became a teacher in Southern Middle School at
The setting that Church used was soothing based off the painting because after looking at the painting multiple times, I truly feel that I can go inside it. The interesting thing about this setting is that there was an art school at the time called The Hudson River School. Church was only 21 years old when he painted this magnificent piece on the canvas. With a mentor like Thomas Cole, Church became an elaborate artist at a young age who made many more paintings. Most of Church’s works are landscape paintings, but it is the beauty of nature and emphasis in the painting that stands out against other
